Submit an Article and Help Change the World!

Submit Articles 
CostaRicaHappy.com is an independent blog for people interested in natural health, living the simple life and building a life in another language, promoting the PURA VIDA (PURE LIFE) from anywhere to help change the world. Since we left our cluttered lives in Texas and moved to Costa Rica, we opened Carne Rico Jerky and other smoked meats to sustain our new, simple life. We author and host mind-opening articles encouraging interested people to dive into the simple life, pura vida style! We produce editorials and videos that inspire our readers and liberate them from the hoarding life patronized in the USA of accumulating debt, purchasing many unnecessary material things and living less adventures. We want to motivate people to think out of the box and be courageous and philanthropic to help change the world. We welcome contributing writers to submit their original content along with videos and experiences. If you do not have photos, we can offer beautiful photos from our travels in Costa Rica.

Word count: There is no minimum word count, although the ideal post runs between 300 and 1000 words. 
Links to other content: Please consider our goal of supporting the small business and search our site for information and links to certain topics before you link to other sources.
